Cape Town - Portugal. The Man’s show in Cape Town at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens has been unavoidably rescheduled from Friday, 20 March to Wednesday, 25 March.

This is due to a mechanical fault with the airplane, on route to SA, which was forced to make an emergency landing.

Although this means that the indie-rockers will not be able to make it in time for their scheduled performance on Friday night, they will still be joining Joburg fans at Sowing the Seeds Music and Lifestyle Festival this Saturday, 21 March, as scheduled.   

If you have bought tickets for the Cape Town show for this Friday, 20 March, they are still valid for the new show date. Fans that can’t make the new show date are able to get a refund by emailing before Tuesday, 24 March at midday.  

Seed Experiences is relieved the band is OK and apologises for any inconvenience caused to fans, but still looks forward to a mind-blowing and world-class performance from the American band, supported by Desmond and the Tutus, next week!
